Property description

Our 150 year old house (completely renovated) is in a small mediaeval village on Lake of Como, Italy. Beeline to the lakeshore is less than a quater of a mile. We share the large house with our friend and split it into two completely separated (three-story) apartments with shared wonderful garden. The prestigious town of Menaggio is ten minutes away with one of the oldest Italian golf courses.

Our duplex-side has two bedrooms (one for 2, one for 4), two baths (each with shower), a large living room with big fireplace, fully-equipped kitchen (with laundry) leads to a sunny private terrace, old palms in the garden, and a breathtaking view on the lake and mountains... dolce vita! Each room has a wonderful view over the garden and lake.

Surrounded by all Italian families, you will not have a touristic feeling in our place. Our friendly neighbors formerly grew their own wine... and might offer you a glass. There is a small shop, that provides everything from fresh bread to fresh fruit, wine, cheese... just 5 minutes to walk along the narrow cobblestone path.

Our home is wonderfully located in a very small, old village called Santa Maria-Rezzonico, on the Western shore of the lake, about 4 miles north of Menaggio.

We hope it is no problem for you, that you can't park the car directly in front of the house. You have to walk approximately 80 meters. On the other hand there is no traffic in the village at all, because the old cobblestone paths are too narrow.

So it is a very rural and peaceful setting, you should not only enjoy the beautiful lake and mountain view from the garden. Prestigious Como (wonderful drive along numerous old Italian palazzos on the lake) and Lugano (Switzerland) are only 40 minutes away. You can drive to Milano in 80 minutes, or you can find yourself in the Swiss Alps in St. Moritz in two hours. Venice is about four hours away, Florence five hours.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose San Siro (formerly Santa Maria Rezzonico):
When our kids were little, we looked for a place to enjoy vacacions without stress, secluded and save. We found this old house with its garden in the mid of Italian neigborhood like a fallen asleep hideaway. So we renovated it and made our Italian dream come true.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The broad views from the garden and from all the windows of the house on the lake are very touching. And all that in charming Italian Neigborhood will not make you feel like a tourist.
